Seahawks new home

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Seattle begins training camp Friday in a familiar setting: Kirkland. The team's new headquarters will be waiting though and the team will make that a new home during training camp.

The team's official site has an explanation of the benefits of the new facility. Here's a link to the story.

"We’ll find out what kind of effect it has on free agency. We want players to realize it’s a building they can work in and live in year round. We want players coming to Seattle when they see we have the best facility in the NFL."
    -- Tim Ruskell, Seahawks president

The story says that the first meals are slated to be served up on Aug. 17 so that's a date to circle on when the Seahawks are expecting to relocate in Renton along the shore of Lake Washington. Want a look sooner? There's also a photo gallery on the team's site.

Lawrence Jackson remains unsigned

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Defensive lineman Lawrence Jackson, Seattle's first-round pick, hasn't signed. That's not unusual, though. So far, only seven of the 31 players taken in the first round of April's draft have signed an agreement. Here's a link to the list of first-round signees from the league's official Web site.

Tight end John Carlson -- Seattle's second-round pick -- also remains unsigned. Agreements with fourth-round pick Red Bryant and fifth-rounder Owen Schmitt are in place, but have not been announced by Seattle so the paperwork may not be final yet.

The status of those picks is something that will be monitored closely over the next few days.
